A man has been jailed following an assault in Horsham.
Police were called to reports of a disturbance at an address in Peary Close at around 6pm on Monday, 30 January 2023.
Kristopher Everitt, 40, of no fixed address, entered the property without permission, before showing a resident his hands covered in blood. He then proceeded to rub it on his victim’s t-shirt and his face.
Other residents of the property, who were known to him, intervened, and shouted at Everitt to leave, who eventually did.
Upon exiting, he damaged a fence on Cook Road.
Everitt pleaded guilty to both criminal damage and common assault, and was sentenced for 14 months’ imprisonment on Monday, 22 January when he appeared at Brighton Magistrates’ Court.
